So I guess you could say my romance with Spin is getting pretty serious. 😍😍 I talked to the instructor today about cycling shoes. I went to the trek store and found out they will cost me 119.00 plus I have to buy 20.00 clips. 🙈🙈 130.00 investment seemed pretty ridiculous.
I got professionally fitted, wrote down all the specs, and found a pair on ebay WITH the clips for 50.00 with shipping. They're the same brand, in my size, and they were used for indoor cycling so they're clean. Woop woop.. I just saved 70.00 dollars!!! 😍😍
#CoopsSPINNINGmama in the house! 😍😍
Jantinha para fechar a noite desta quarta: sobrecoxa de frango com cebola, temperos secos e extrato de tomate, arroz, lentilha e tomate. Tenham uma ótima noite e que amanhã nós possamos acordar com mais energia ainda!! 😊💪 #boanoite#jantar
If you are an emotional eater, you are not alone. Many people use food as a means of comfort, stress relief, boredom or even celebration…not for fueling the body. The trouble with emotional eating is that it doesn't alleviate emotions and often leaves us feeling worse or even feeling guilty. Learning one’s emotional eating "triggers" helps in recognizing the difference between emotional and physical hunger and, therefore, allows one to break free from emotional eating.
To stop the cycle of emotional eating, it’s important to first recognize when it occurs. When seeking food in response to stress or emotions, stop and recognize the trigger. Is it stress, sadness, loneliness, boredom, anxiousness, etc? Be mindful of what your body needs vs. your emotional needs. Should you find yourself reaching for food when you are “emotionally hungry,” replace it with an activity such as walking, reading, taking a bath, dancing, or talking to a trusted friend. Remember - Stop (pause before reacting). Challenge (what do you really want the outcome to be?). Choose (make a conscious choice about eating or doing something constructive.) Most of the time, you will make a much better choice! This is a great exercise for it creates mindfulness and puts you in more control. Would you like to know more about physical vs. emotional hunger? Would you like to overcome emotional eating? Please contact me to learn more about the difference between the two and for tips on taking control of your eating habits. .
Fitness-y stuff on the blog today! 💪🏻Shoulder issues? Upper body weakness? I'm sharing an awesome (and humbling) scapular activation exercise that my good chiro friend showed me & currently doing in rehab. Take a little peak and try it out (http://thewellu.com/fitness-stuff-scapular-weakness/) link in profile (and big thanks to @mark.a.thomas for being my hunky model man 💪🏻💁🏾♂️)
My top 3 back exercises 👊
1.Deadlift- This is technically more than a back exercise—The deadlifts hit's your whole body, from your calves to your upper traps—it's an absolute beast for back development.
2.Bent over Barbell Row- If you want to add a lot of thickness and detail into your back, you need barbell rows or a row variant.
3.Pull ups- Red bull doesn't give you wings, Pull ups do. ✈️.
#WayBackWednesday to the Spring 2015 issue of MuscleSportMagazine. It was an honor and a blessing to be on a cover with the likes of such great company. I'm the smallest guy on the cover(literally and figuratively lol) but that is about to change this Spring. The way I see it is that 2016 was a giant test to see just how badly I want my own cover. And what I found out was that I've never wanted something so badly in my life and I am 100% going to get it.
